EDITOR:

I would like to encourage all Placerville residents to support Wendy Mattson’s candidacy for a seat on the Placerville City Council.

Candidate Mattson is not the typical agenda driven politician we so frequently see in today’s political scene. She is motivated by her strong personal desire to serve her community in a supportive and constructive manner while giving back to the city she loves dearly.

Wendy Mattson was born here, raised her daughters here, ran a business here and continues to live here … there is no other City Council candidate with more invested nor with more commitment to Placerville, which has been her families’ home for four generations.

Characteristically, candidate Mattson first solicits input from her constituents and then seeks a consensus of their ideas, deliberating and deciding on a proposal that best serves the majority before taking a stance on issues. All of those who have participated with or observed Wendy Mattson working with the Broadway Village Improvement Association, Placerville City Council, El Dorado Transportation Commission or Placerville Area Convergence Team know firsthand that candidate Mattson is highly effective and refreshingly positive in her pursuit of reasonable solutions to issues facing our community.

I totally agree with Marian Washburn’s statement in her Oct. 5 letter to the editor, “A government body is like a team; it only succeeds when each member acknowledges the expertise of other members and puts those skills to work for its citizens.”

I am convinced that the residents of Placerville do not need divisive, agenda driven politicians occupying a seat on the Placerville City Council.

Fortunately for everyone in Placerville, Wendy Mattson is the real thing — refreshing in her seemingly boundless energy, motivating with her honest enthusiasm, and inspiring with her creativity (after all, she is an accomplished artist). Simply stated we need Wendy Mattson on our Placerville City Council team.

So please join me and vote for Wendy Mattson, who will support all of Placerville with her dedicated focus on our community’s need for improvement, with sensitivity and passion.
